BePolished was founded by Porsha Cills and Rasha Price in 2013. We are a community-based organization empowering girls reared in single-parent households in the Washington, DC Metropolitan region.
Studies show girls raised in single-parent homes are more likely to become teenage parents, live in lower-income households, and experience academic and self-image challenges. The founders witnessed these disparities while volunteering in Washington, DC. BePolished was established to respond to the call of educating, mentoring, empowering through self-awareness, and supporting the girls in our communities.
Our programs are designed to inspire girls and to support them at each stage of their development—mentally, physically, and socially. We provide “Life Etiquette” instruction as a tool to enhance and nurture each girl in becoming exceptional leaders in their communities and society at large.
